Manager, Service Desk, Desktop Support and Telecommunications
Richmond City Public Schools
I have been working in the K-12 environment for over 30 years and still find the challenges fulfilling as well as exciting. To have the opportunity to engage this vision in a leadership role is a goal that I look forward to taking part in. I've always felt that to successfully support and drive technology in the K-12 space requires building strong, trusting and fruitful partnerships with the community, the K-12 staff and students. This opportunity will afford me to better serve them all.
Vision for VSTE
To continue to endorse and support the vision of VDOE with their primary "emphasis on integrating technology into the classroom, as a tool for providing ways for students to achieve in school more broadly and more deeply." I've been an integral part of VSTE for the past 20+ years in my role as a member of the Equipment and Networking team and more recently the chairperson. What an honor to be nominated to the Board! This experience will enhance my ability to lead, educate and inspire my staff.
I am a wife of 30 years, mother of two with one grandson, and have lived in Virginia my whole life. I love reading, walking, and have an absolute love for helping others. Supporting technology was something I fell into while supporting a wonderful boss who introduced technology to our district many years ago. I have grown in leaps and bounds, being promoted to team lead, supervisor, and now Manager of Technology Support for our district. I will give all I can and continue to grow and support RPS until they tell me to go home!
